Sun xVM Ops Center 2.1 is released
By Owen Allen on Apr 24, 2009
Sun xVM Ops Center 2.1 was released today. The big focus with the 2.1 release was quality - there have been a lot of performance improvements and bug fixes. However, there are also some front-end changes.
For one, there were some enhancements in Gear Monitoring. The big one is power monitoring: Individual pieces of hardware as well as groups now have power utilization charts, which can show current and historical data. There's a configuration tab for each gear that shows which Proxy it belongs to and how it's reachable.
A number of the other changes focused on Proxy Controllers. You can set a Proxy Controller as a default, which routes jobs to it wherever possible. There are also changes to Custom Discovery that give you more control over which Proxy is handling specific gear.
If you're looking for more information, the documentation for Sun xVM Ops Center 2.1 is open, and there's also a demo from Tony Tomarchio that goes through a lot of the features in detail. I'll also answer your questions next week.
